Es muß was Wunderbares sein
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FIN FRE
Es muß [was]1 Wunderbares sein
Um's Lieben zweier Seelen,
Sich schließen ganz einander ein,
Sich nie ein Wort verhehlen,
Und Freud und Leid und Glück und Not
So mit einander tragen;
Vom ersten Kuß bis [in]2 den Tod
Sich nur von Liebe sagen.
